Have the structure properly inspected before demo begins.
The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) enforces the EPA’s National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for asbestos. This states that, prior to any demolition or renovation, a structure must be properly inspected for asbestos-containing materials.
An inspector certified in accordance with the DHHS Nebraska Asbestos Control Program Regulations, Title 178, must do the inspection.
Contact DHHS at (402) 471-0386 if you have any questions.
